ROCHESTER, Minn., July 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (MCCC) received an additional five years of National Cancer Institute (NCI) funding and re-designation as a comprehensive cancer center, according to Robert Diasio, M.D., the center's director.

The NCI Cancer Center Support Grant award to MCCC totals more than $28 million over five years for infrastructure and administrative support for cancer center researchers across Mayo's three sites in Minnesota, Florida and Arizona.
